Chelsea Clock Company, The First Hundred Years  

Boston Clock Company

flagline.gif (1024 bytes)

Boston Clock Company, 1884-1894, continued the traditions of the Harvard Clock Company after a name change in 1884.  Boston Clock Company began producing striking clocks in 1886 after the invention of the famous Boston tandem wind movement.   This type was produced in house strike and in limited numbers, ship's bell.    The ship's bell clocks appear to be prototypes, as all known examples vary significantly in movement design. Circumstantial evidence exists that these ship's bell clocks marked "Boston Clock Co.", were assembled at the Vermont Clock Company circa 1900.   From 1884-1894 Boston Clock Company produced approximately 15000 clocks.
